HP Introduces Mopier 240 Network Copier; New Network Copier Allows Customers to Create Copies Directly from Their Desktops.

PALO ALTO, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 18, 1998--Hewlett-Packard Company today introduced the HP Mopier 240 network copier, which lets users create copies directly from their desktops. The Mopier 240 network copier is the first in a new line of HP products combining copierlike finishing capability, service and support with the benefits of HP's network-printing expertise. The Mopier 240 network copier will be the first HP peripheral sold exclusively to copier customers through qualified dealers offering service, support and sales agreements.

The Mopier 240 network copier is designed to bring the benefits of mopying to typical copier customers seeking faster, more reliable and productive ways of making duplicates. The Mopier 240 network copier produces first-generation quality copies at 24ppm and offers the paper-handling and finishing capabilities copier buyers expect.

"With the Mopier 240 network copier, we have taken the next step toward offering a complete network-copying solution that provides users the features and functionality they need to make copies directly from their desktops," said Keith Cutter, marketing manager for HP's Mopy/Copy Solutions Operation. "We feel that the Mopier 240 network copier and future mopiers will fit perfectly in a company's overall copier mix by adding network-copying functionality to existing walk-up copying solutions."

"HP Mopier network copiers will be an easy choice for customers seeking to move from analog to digital network copying," said Cheryl Currid, president of Currid & Company, a Houston-based consulting firm. "Because of this analog-to-digital trend, we are witnessing an increasing shift in responsibility from the MIS person to the office manager. These office managers often face the responsibility of selecting digital copiers to place on a network. By leveraging both HP's reputation for quality and reliability with its networking expertise, HP's new line of mopiers should be able to help make these purchase decisions easier than ever."

The Mopier 240 network copier is the first in what HP plans to be a long line of network copiers. Future mopiers are expected to build upon the Mopier 240 network copier's capabilities by adding faster and slower speeds, color and walk-up digital copying.

The Mopier 240 network copier is managed using HP Web JetAdmin, the same software with which MIS managers are accustomed to managing HP LaserJet printers. This makes incorporating a Mopier 240 network copier into the company's network simple and seamless -- and provides access to maintenance and service information at the copier manager's desk.

The Mopier 240 network copier is networked using an HP JetDirect 600N print server, based on HP's new EIO architecture introduced Oct. 20, 1997, boosting network copying performance to up to twice that of conventional MIO print servers.


The HP Mopier 240 network copier is available today only through qualified HP mopier resellers for a price of $5,170 (U.S.) for the base model, with a range of configurations up to $8,393 (U.S.). Selling through qualified HP mopier resellers allows HP to take advantage of these partners' expertise in providing both walk-up copying and network-copying solutions and services for their customers.
